ESP32-S2 Feather wont show under "This PC"

by EndersShadow on Sun Dec 26, 2021 7:46 pm

I've attempted about 50 times to follow these instructions to reset the device so I can load it.

The LED lights flicker and indicate I'm hitting the button but no combination results in the machine seeing the `boardnameBOOT` under "This PC"......


Any suggestions welcome.

Please note, I purchased this USB cable, so I know its a data cable and compatible with what I'm trying to do.

Could you try the following steps before we troubleshoot further?

1) Reboot your PC.
2) Download the bootloader (Download the tinyuf2 combined.bin file) from:
https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-esp ... -3089838-6
3) unzip the above into a folder
4) on the ESP32-S2 feather, hold down BOOT and click RESET
5) open https://adafruit.github.io/Adafruit_WebSerial_ESPTool
6) Connect it to the serial port shown in device manager for the ESP32-S2
7) Erase the flash
8) Select the unzipped file combined.bin from step 3 above
9) Program the flash (still in the WebSerial_ESPTool)
10) Now you should see FEATHERBOOT as a file system on your computer
11) Download the WipperSnapper UF2 from github
12) Drag the file from 11 to METROBOOT. Now the directory is called WIPPER
13) Edit secrets configuration file with io and wifi info
14) Go to io.adafruit.com/<yourname>/dashboards/ and click on wippersnapper on the top
15) You should now see the funhouse device listed as Feather ESP32-S2

Thank you that worked, I was able to get the device listed in *My Computer* and edited the *secrets* file and now it registers on my network.

Now I have a different problem, when I went to add the AHT20, I was able to select it from the menu, but it wont register. I've followed the instructions to:

1. Click *New Component*
1. Select *AHT20*
1. A dropdown pulls up but under *Select I2C Address:* it says: *No matching addresses found.*

Any suggestions?

On Adafruit IO, click on your WipperSnapper Device, then click "Start I2C Scan"....

Do you see your AHT20 @ I2C address 0x38?

From your Adafruit IO screen shot, it appears you are running the QT Py S2 firmware on your Adafruit Feather ESP32-S2.

The QT Py S2 uses Arduino 40 (SCL1) and 41 (SDA1) on the STEMMA QT connector IO pins. The Adafruit Feather ESP32-S2 breaks out SCL and SDL (sans the “1”) aka GPIO4 & GPIO5 on the STEMMA QT connector.

I know it took a bit of work to get your board running WipperSnapper. But, your sensor should work when you get the right firmware running on your Adafruit Feather ESP32-S2.

^ you should be running the wippersnapper.feather_s2_tinyusb.1.0.0-....uf2 firmware on your Feather ESP32S2, this file can be found on: https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_Wi ... ses/latest
